The Bridge to Bridge Waterfront Festival is a timed race for boats on the Sacramento River. Along with boat racing there are Jet Ski races, Coast Guard rescue demonstrations, and other festival activities. Seating and events are held on both sides of the river.
For the 2nd Annual Bridge to Bridge Waterfront Festival, Keith Wackford of Associated Sound was asked to set up a sound system that could be used on both sides of the river. Traditional sound system wiring could not be used because of the river’s width (about 500 feet). The show also had boats and helicopters, each with its own radio system, moving in and out of the reception field. A Listen wireless audio system proved to be the answer.
Wackford and his team recommended the Listen LT-800 Stationary Transmitter and the LR-100 Stationary Receiver / Power Amplifier. This system had two advantages: it could broadcast the event’s audio to the needed locations without wiring, and it provided auditory assistance via personal receivers to individuals who were hard of hearing. To increase the transmission range and signal strength, the team installed Yagi (high gain) antennas on the LT-800 and LR-100 units. Testing at Associated Sound revealed that the system could broadcast up to 2,000 feet without problems.
The system performed beautifully for the entire two day event. The festival directors were overjoyed by the audio quality and the fact that there were no reception problems all weekend. The audio was clean, full, and loud. Listen wireless audio products were able to provide not only a workable solution for a problematic installation, but one that offered flexibility and quality performance as well.
